James Wallace (Open Directory Project) debuts as Opn, delivering a wonderful first EP entitled Echoes Of A Distant Present. Opn's Echoes Of A Distant Present surfaces as a three-track collection of beautifully crafted and carefully restrained compositions - reminiscent of the progression and restraint of Stars Of The Lid while offering the listener the texture and focus of something similar to the work of Tim Hecker - All the while sounding like something halfway between. Echoes Of A Distant Present is an excellent addition to the Robotopera catalog and your music collection.
